Although many places across the region have woken up to glorious sunshine this morning, the Met Office is predicting it won't last with rain on the way. The forecast for the south west over the next few days is a mixture of sunshine, showers, cloud and possibly even thunder.

The bright start to today, May 25, is expected to turn to showery rain by this evening in many places. The Met Office says it will start clouding over from the west through the morning with some showery outbreaks in the far west during the afternoon.

However, it will feel warm with a maximum temperature of 20°C. There is expected to be a damp end to the day with outbreaks of rain pushing in from the west.

A drier day is expected on Monday, May 27, with fewer showers, easing by the afternoon. A strengthening breeze and outbreaks of rain will then arrive on Tuesday, followed by showers or longer spells of rain on Wednesday.
